Too much worship for The Jimmer? One BYU student thinks so, gets Jimmered on her Facebook page

Ought-oh. Another controversy is brewing in Provo, thanks to this letter-to-the-editor in the BYU student newspaper, the Daily Universe by student Michelle Peralta. It seems that not every one on campus is a fan of The Jimmer. And I am guessing that Michelle wouldn't be in favor of that W-W-J-D sign that some student always brings to home games. You know, "What Would Jimmer Do?" Peralta found out on her Facebook page just hours after the letter was printed that, well, hers was not a popular opinion. Here's a glance at the comments posted to her wall, which have since been taken down.

Give it a look, but you might not be able to stop laughing.

————————- By the way, after Saturday's 78-64 win over UNLV in which he scored 29 points and had seven assists, Fredette went over to the student section after doing a TV interview and personally thanked as many classmates as he could for their support. Then he said this: "I just wanted ... to go over there and give the students some love. They have done a great job this whole season, just kind of being there. We've had a lot of sellouts this year, and they have been there the whole time. They are very creative and they are really, really into BYU basketball right now. So I thought it was a good thing to go over there and just kind of see how they were doing, show them a little bit of love."
